Today I was able to pick up my bib and race swag for the Nike Women’s 1/2 Marathon! I completely forgot that there would be an early packet pick-up in San Francisco this week, but the Nike Women’s Marathon posted a reminder on their Facebook page today. I lucked out and had the evening off of work so I drove to the Nike store on Union Street in SF to grab my things. Considering over 20, 000 people are running this race, I can’t believe I’m race bib 866! The guy who helped me at packet pick-up said that I must’ve been one of the first registered. Lucky me!
In other fun news…my boyfriend, Rich, bought us round-trip plane tickets to Dublin next year!!
Home of Guinness!!
Note: I have a surprising number of pictures of Guinness in my iPhone camera roll
We will be in Europe for 3 weeks in May, and will probably select 1-2 other cites outside of Ireland to visit (I’m rooting for Paris and Rome!). It is one of my dreams to run an international race, so I also have my eye out for a good half marathon. Originally, I planned to run a full marathon in Europe-which I hope to do someday, but as this is my first trip outside of the US, I don’t want to put too much pressure on my vacation. However! I’m planning on running the San Francisco Marathon again next year, so I will have plenty of training runs while abroad. Can. Not. Wait!
